Thrift shop offers more than used items

Nanaimo Community Hospice Society’s  Hospice Thrift Shoppe is more than just a store where the public can purchase gently-used or often new items.

It also offers a friendly and safe place for individuals who have experienced the loss of a loved one to volunteer, meet others and find healing.

More than 80 volunteers from a variety of backgrounds have found their way to hospice for a variety of reasons. And there is now an opportunity for more people to take part.

Hospice is recruiting volunteers for its second shop in Bowen Centre at 1925 Bowen Rd.

The shop, opening this spring, features electronics, garden tools, books, household goods, clothing  and more.

For more information, or to apply for a volunteer position, please drop by the Hospice Thrift Shoppe at 5-4286 Departure Bay Rd. at the corner of Norwell Drive or call 250-758-8886.
